people are getting hit on all sides and there is no effective recourse or relief being proposed by our owners.

i think our owners bank on the populace being stultified by television and consumerism: as long as people can escape, they won't confront the ugly reality.

but if they keep putting the screws to the majority of people, i think a breaking point might be reached.

riots are effective in one way: they really grab the attention of "Authority."

the difference between now and the 1960s is that police forces have changed from constabulary to paramilitary shock troops.
